During our recent trip to Meghalaya, we learnt so many life skills. Even though these skills wouldn't come to any use in our usual city life but leave us in the jungle and we will rock it.
For an instance take this particular picture. We had just one cooking pot for the whole trip which turned so black on first use that made us believe to not using it again. But, then came handy the dadi-nani (grand mother) tips. I remember my grand mother using residuals of the fire (raakh) for cleaning the utensils. And so here's what we did - used the Riverside sand to clean the pot. .
Also, both of us have excelled the job of making a bon fire or lighting up the traditional brazier (angithi). We felt like going back in time on this trip. It was sort of connecting with the roots. Sometimes it was too exhausting to do it all on our own but at the end what we remember is all the fun that we had. .
How about you? When was the last time you felt connected to your roots? Would love to hear some good stories. Bring it on!
PS: Look at my man showing off his skills 😘

I found a city that feels like what hot tea on a cold rainy day tastes like warm, safe, slow enjoyed best in small sips.
I found a city that shelters my dreams softly, lightly between the hills that are covered with snow; a city small enough to be explored without a map with every lane breathing a new colour with every passing train carrying more dreamers, to the land.
I found a city that allowed me to breathe in it's bittersweet incense of Hope and daisies even when I was running in circles, around squares.
I found a city that was messy and alive goodbye felt like leaving my heart 💓 behind in a land it's already made home in; and after all that it gave me I think it's safe to say I found a city that found me.
